Peek Inside the Biggest-Ever New Build to Hit the Market in Memorial

IN HEDWIG VILLAGE sits a newly completed masterpiece, the largest new-construction home to ever go up for sale in the Memorial Villages. At 17,369 square feet, 10950 Beinhorn, listed by Bryan Beene with Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty for just shy of $9M, is also the biggest new build currently on the market in all of Houston.

Designed by Jessica Lisenby of Legacy Development Group, the six-bedroom, stucco-and-brick home is located on a three-quarter-acre site on of Memorial's best-known streets. Hardwood floors throughout are arranged traditionally and in patterns like herringbone, and give way to gorgeously marbled floors in the kitchen and laundry room.

In the kitchen, custom two-toned cabinets and designer pendants add intrigue and texture. More custom cabinetry can be found in the owner's suite, where a two-story lounge and unbelievably large closet beckon. A guest suite also serves as another home within a home, complete with rain shower and kitchenette. A bonus and rarity in Houston: a fully finished attic, decked out with efficient and beautiful storage solutions.

Outside, a fully turfed lawn, modest pool and wood-trimmed covered patio set the scene for enjoying the outdoors any time of year. Other amenities include a Cummins Quiet Connect generator, an Inclinator Elevator, four Navien tankless water heaters, and a Trane HVAC system.

Zimmer and Gooch and, at right, their debut product, a super-strong magnetic silicone bib

IT'S A TALE as old as time: A flustered mom tries to put a bib or clothing item on her fussy baby — one-handed, naturally; moms do almost everything one-handed — only to have the kid put up a fight using that disproportionate strength of theirs, and everyone is left more frustrated than they were five minutes ago.
